New Love Island bombshell Danny Bibby apologises for the "ignorant" use of a racial slur in a historic social media post.

Love Island's latest bombshell Danny Bibby has apologised for his historical use of the n-word in a social media post.

The 25-year-old, who works as a plumber in Wigan, was seen entering the villa in last night's show after taking two of the girls on speed dates.

Fans of the show raised concern, however, when they trawled through his social media accounts and found an Instagram post from 2019 where he used the n-word.

In a statement issued from inside the villa, Danny said: "I'd like to take the time to apologise to anyone that may have taken offence to my inappropriate remark. I never meant anything malicious by this comment at all.

"I am not a racist person and it's unacceptable language and ignorant. I meant no offence and feel like I have really learnt from my mistakes and will never use that word again.

"I am a kind loving person and hopefully you get to see that in the show."

Love Island continues tomorrow night at 9pm on ITV2.
